MSA Altair 5x Multigas Detector

WORKERS who face potentially dangerous situations deserve the best protection available. At MSA, we work tirelessly to build smarter, better gas detection instruments that people across the world rely on. First we introduced MSA’s advanced technology with the ALTAIR 4X Multigas Detector with XCell Sensors. Now we’re proud to introduce the expansion of the most advanced technology available in any portable gas detector on the market: the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector with XCell Sensor Technology.

Life-Saving Performance:

  Large buttons and bright display enable quick and easy operation even while wearing gloves
  If a user becomes disabled due to unforeseen hazards, the MotionAlert sensor will activate after 30 seconds
  The InstantAlert feature enables users to manually alert others of a dangerous situation with the push of a button
  Compatible with Galaxy Test System
  MSA Link ™ Software-ready
  Global approvals for worldwide acceptance
  Glow-in-the-dark housing for mining and confined space applications

Lasting Durability:

  Three-year back-to-back instrument warranty includes CO/H2S/O2/LEL/SO2 and IR sensors
  Two-year warranty on NH3 and Cl2; minimum 12-month warranty on other sensors
  Withstands extreme impacts with rugged polycarbonate housing
  Passes 10-foot drop test
  The IP65-rated ALTAIR 5X is both dust-tight and water-tight

Built on Durability - The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector for LEL, O2, and toxic gas detection is as tough and functional as it looks. A rugged polycarbonate housing provides unsurpassed durability, including the ability to survive a 3 m drop. Inside, a field-proven integral pump provides consistent gas flow without the problems of externally-attached components. Ergonomic design, glove-friendly buttons, and high-contrast display make the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector easy to use in all applications.

Powered by Performance - Toughness and durability aren’t the whole story. The real strength of the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector comes from new sensor technology. MSA XCell Sensors have a typical life of more than double the industry average, and are engineered using MSA’s proprietary application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) design. By miniaturizing the sensors’ controlling electronics and placing them inside the sensor itself, MSA XCell Sensors offer superior stability, accuracy, and repeatability.

MSA XCell Sensors are a breakthrough in chemical and mechanical sensor design, enabling faster response and span calibration times. With less time spent on calibration and bump tests, you save calibration gas, maintenance costs, and in turn, save money.

But most importantly, in your industry, saving seconds on response time can also mean saving lives.

In addition to MSA XCell Sensors, the ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector can also be equipped with our wide variety of IR sensors covering many gases and ranges including CO2.

Flexibility to Meet Your Needs - MSA’s ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector provides many options to fit various applications. The detector is configurable with either a high-resolution colour or monochrome LCD display with multilingual capabilities. MSA’s Logo Express Service option is available to customize the colour display. The detector is easily configurable with interchangeable plug-and-play sensor slots for MSA XCell Sensors. Up to six gases can be monitored simultaneously.

Furthermore, this multigas detector offers optional glow-in-the-dark instrument housing for IR sensor-equipped units. The ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector’s lithium-ion battery lasts up to 20 hours, allowing it to be used over multiple shifts. An alkaline battery pack is also available as an accessory. MSA’s ALTAIR 5X Multigas Detector is fully compatible with the MSA GALAXY Automated Test System and MSA Link Software.
